West Indies skipper Rovman Powell won the toss and elected to bat against India. Brandon King and Kyle Mayers opened for the hosts while Arshdeep Singh bowled the first over.
While King (28) kicked off West Indies’ innings on a strong note, hitting 4 fours and 1 six, Mayers (1) struggled to score. Yuzvendra Chahal brought a breakthrough for India as he dismissed both openers in the 5th over.
However, West Indies still had some fight left as Nicholas Pooran (41) wreaked havoc on Indian bowlers before he was dismissed in the 15th over. Powell (48) continued to take WI forward before he was caught by Suryakumar Yadav off Arshdeep’s ball in the 19th over. West Indies ended the innings at 149/6.
Ishan Kishan (6) and Shubman Gill (3) opened for India. The opening duo perished cheaply before Suryakumar Yadav (21) and Tilak Varma (39) got together. Varma looked very much at home on his international debut with an impressive 39 off 22 balls.
With 37 needed off the last 30 balls and six wickets in hand, India self-destructed to end at 145 for nine in 20 overs. Jason Holder brought the West Indies back into the game when he found the stumps of India skipper Hardik Pandya (19) in the 16th over before Sanju Samson (12) got run out. Romario Shepherd bowled a stunning last over to defend 10 runs and WI were able to get 2 wickets in the last 6 balls.
